Today, the University is announcing Jim Tressel's resignation as head coach of the University's football program. Luke Fickell will serve as interim head coach for the 2011-2012 football season. Recruitment for a new head coach - which is expected to include external and internal candidates - will not commence until the conclusion of the 2011-2012 season.
Throughout all we do at the University, we have one set of standards and one overarching mission. As we move forward, the University's enduring public purposes and its tradition of excellence continue to guide our actions.
E. Gordon Gee
